Why is it so difficult for people to lose weight and keep it off? There are as many opinions about this, as there are diets and diet programs on the market.
Diets Don’t Work
Many people make resolutions to lose weight for New Years, and honestly, I am not a fan. I don’t believe that diets work for the long-term for most people, and instead believe in making healthy, permanent lifestyle changes.
Healthy Eating For Weight Loss
It can be difficult to decipher what healthy eating is these days, because different experts recommend different eating plans – from Ketogenic Diets to the Whole-30 to the Mediterranean Diet. My son’s developmental pediatrician recommends eating as much organic, non-GMO food as you can afford with a rainbow of colors and variety of sources. This makes sense to me!
However, it can be difficult to get the necessary nutrients in the food we eat today. Our soil has been depleted of many vital nutrients, and we need to eat a large quantity of food to get our RDA of vitamins and minerals – which is not conducive to weight loss.
Essential Oils May Help
Essential oils have long been a passion of mine – largely due to the positive impact they have had on my son’s health. I have a 16 y.o. son, Danny, with a rare genetic disorder called Cohen Syndrome. He was chronically ill as a child, despite many natural and medical interventions. We were introduced to essential oils in 2014, and I am pleased to report they have had a dramatic impact on Danny’s health.
I began using essential oils myself shortly after, and have recently found them effective in losing weight, and keeping it off! I will share three of my favorite essential oil and essential oil-infused products to aid in weight loss and optimal nutrition.
- Slim & Sassy Essential Oil: Use this oil internally in a GLASS of water (not plastic) a few times throughout your day, taken internally in a veggie capsule (make your own vitamin), or apply topically to areas of cellulite to release toxins (did you know cellulite is basically toxins your body needed to store somewhere, so it conveniently put them into fat cells). Slim & Sassy helps to promote a healthy metabolism, reduce cravings, detox your body, balance blood sugar and lift your mood. You can also
apply a drop to your tongue for intense cravings – this works amazing!
- Slim & Sassy Gum: Contains Slim & Sassy Metabolic Oil to help manage cravings throughout the day while supporting a healthy metabolism. I LOVE this gum (and it is sugar-free with natural sweeteners)!
doTERRA Trim Shake: Available in regular or vegetarian formulas and comes in vanilla and chocolate flavors. This shake contains unique ingredients including EssentraTrim– a patented extract of Ashwagandha that has been clinically demonstrated to help control stress-induced appetite, overeating and carb cravings. It also contains Solathin, a special protein extract that supports an increased feeling of satiety. These are great as meal replacements 1-2 times/day or as snacks when cravings are high. Trim Shakes are also available in a Vegan Formula
- Grapefruit Essential Oil: Grapefruit essential oil also helps support a healthy metabolism. If you don’t care for the taste of Slim & Sassy, try grapefruit. You can also diffuse this to help increase your willpower or motivation when changing your eating habits.
Bundle & Save
If you want to give these products a try, I have bundled them together to make it easy, and save you some money!

Essential oils by themselves are not a weight-loss solution. However, the products I mentioned above may improve your long-term success rate for establishing and maintaining a healthy weight. Give them a try – you have nothing to lose (but weight) and everything to gain!
